Using Touch Technology to Transform Instruction

May 18, 2013 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Technology is not new to classrooms, but mobile devices, touch technology, and the cloud are. Let the Highlander Institute help you to navigate your way through these challenging yet powerful classroom tools. Our focus is on using these tools to do three very important things.

1. Increase the personalization of student instruction
2. Collect, analyze and differentiate instruction faster through formative assessment
3. Motivate students through engaging online apps and activities

In order to help teachers to better navigate iPads, SMARTboards, SMARTphones and Web 2.0 resources we have developed a full-day workshop that can be differentiated to your personal needs.

If you are new to this space and need help learning how to use an iPad, find the best apps, and navigate through the growing world of education technology then we can help you to learn new techniques and find resources that will be immediately useful to you in the classroom. We teach student centered techniques that are both content specific and flexible across content areas.

If you are already quite comfortable with iPads and web 2.0 tools and are looking to take your edtech use to the next level then this is also the workshop for you. We can help you to create manageable systems for integrating hardware and software, go paperless in your classroom, or just harness the power of the cloud to make life easier for you and your students.

At our full day workshop you will learn how to do:

1. Video production in the classroom
2. Student blogging and publication
3. Data collection and student portfolio systems
4. Ebook integration (how to find them and create them)

If you have four or more people from your school interested in attending one of our full day touch technology workshops please contact us to arrange a group rate or to discuss possibilities of us coming to your school to run a workshop that is catered directly to your schools hardware and software needs.
